I've been doing pretty good on trying to lose five pounds. I cut out eating chocolate and have been writing down what I eat. You'd be surprised at how much a person eats when you see it on paper. I've been trying to eat a light lunch and not much at supper. Also fresh fruits every day. My husband always has to have potato chips and peanuts in the house. He lives on them and always has to have some available. I stay away from potato chips but occasionally eat some peanuts.
